Ok I'll step up....

Forgettable melodies terrible songs, no guitar solos (Un cool? = can't play 'em) & my main gripe is the voices of the so-called lead singers. Hardly good enough to be doing a backing harmony.

I watched The Killers a while back to listen to the drumming.....& once the lead singer opened his mouth my gf said he makes it sound like a middle school band doing their first gigs. I agree.
"The Editors is another.'s a huge list...miles away from talent/quality.
Being original doesn't mean you are good/talented.

If they are good drummers, they hide it well for the money. Single strokes all the time (Moony is the only guy that could get away with that, & he certainly did:^)
If you see them play the technique sucks as if they've never had a lesson. That's what makes drummers the butt of non musician jokes.

That's showbiz $$$.= con the kids.
Musically literate?

Just saying.

Ok. Now flame me...we all drummers here. That's fine.
"And he plays drums."
